The goal of the Society is to aid descendants of ALL branches of the NUCKOLLS/NUCKOLS/ NUCHOLS/NUCKLES/NUCKELS/KNUCKLES and NUCKOLES family to rediscover their ancestors and re-establish their connections with one another. It is our hope that our small corner of cyber space will serve as a clearing house for sharing genealogy information and linking Nuckolls researchers and family members across the U.S. 

With this in mind, we cordially invite you to browse through the pages of our site and encourage your contributions of info and/or photos, as well as any suggestions or comments that you might have

Explore the history of the Nuckolls family lineage as well as family lore in an attempt to discover our connection across the waters of the Atlantic.

Search the records which include, births, deaths, baptisms, land, census, military, marriages, cemetery, and much much more.

Search the Database with an "all name" index.  Because this file is so large, it cannot be included with the pico search engine. When searching for your ancestor, it is suggested you begin by finding the female spouse. It is faster than scrolling through an alphabetical list of thousands of Nuckols.

Check out the DNA project and keep up with the latest findings. See what we have already uncovered. This is a valuable resource to connect lines we are not sure of the parentage, and to try and bridge the ocean.

See what your ancestors and cousins look like by exploring our photo album. We have also included photos of famous homesteads.

If you need research help, we can provide links and offer suggestions to aid in your search. Free research is provided for all of our Society members, regardless of the direct family connection.

To keep up to date on events, and queries, questions, etc, we suggest you join the mailing lists. These lists are used for discussions, and I use them to post new information. It can be a valuable tool to connect with people who may be in your direct family line.

Check out the Nuckolls Society and what it offers. We have published many books, and offer those books and CD's for sale at a reasonable price. We publish a newsletter 4 times a year, and members are provided free research help.


"The Chosen"

We are the chosen. In each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again. To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story. So, we do. In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told the ancestors, "You have a wonderful family; you would be proud of us.". How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me? I cannot say. It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who I am, and why I do the things I do. It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying - I can't let this happen. The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses, their never giving in or giving up, their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family. It goes to deep pride that the fathers fought and some died to make and keep us a nation. It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us. It is of equal pride and love that our mothers struggled to give us birth, without them we could not exist, and so we love each one, as far back as we can reach. That we might be born who we are. That we might remember them. So we do. With love and caring and scribing each fact of their existence, because we are they and they are the sum of who we are. So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next generation to answer the call and take my place in the long line of family storytellers. That is why I do my family genealogy, and that is what calls those young and old to step up and restore the memory or greet those who we had never known before."
